In the Philippines, 58 survivors started their journey to healing, restoration, and freedom.
“This is a huge first step for victims of trafficking and exploitation on their road to freedom, and we are honored to be part of their journey. There is so much energy and anticipation as survivors are paired with their counselors and as they connect with others in the program,” says our Local Partner Deputy Country Director Janice Ubaldo, Philippines.
These survivors are being supported with opportunities to learn and grow in self-awareness, self-confidence, coping with stress, and developing self-discipline.
